Welcome to the forum from Pa. Many Wings have gone over 200k with only regular maint. If the bike has been maintained, 100K is nothing to be feared.. Ride safe and enjoy the site...

Welcome Kumfy. What you should find out is the service history (records are nice) of the bike, the condition of the carbs, timing belts, air suspension and compressor, fork seals, any and all rubber hoses and just a general thorough going over. Wings are famous for their longevity, but remember this is a 20 year old machine and subject to the ravages of time. 1500's are great bikes, the only weakness I know of is the alternators on the earlier ones, pre '97 or so were a bit prone to failure.

Kumfy, I think budoka did a good job to identify areas of concern. Only thing I would add is the tires. Check for cracking on the sidewall.

If you can find the handbook for Wing it will have the maint schedule in it and you can check the items with the owner. Good luck and ride safe..
